Current Employee - Staff Pharmacist in Indianapolis, IN
Current Employee - Staff Pharmacist in Indianapolis, IN

I have been working at Kroger full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The pharmacist are paid very well. However, central indiana pharmacy zone managers are unethical, lie and will do anything to get their bonus. They tell tell the pharmacist whatever it takes to pacify and let the problem subside. They hire anyone with a license and tell them they will float for awhile. ALSO, the "floater" pharmacist are paid less than the staff pharmacist and perform the same responsibilities.

Cons

Not enough technician help! Always short, many mornings of opening the pharmacy without a technician until 11 AM or having my last technician leave at 7 pm (open until 9 pm). However, that pro of great pay comes with the con of other benefits decreased to make the pay scale look fabulous. So it is actually all a check and balance. And Kroger does make sure they get their money worth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Kroger pharmacy,central Indiana, zone managers are unethical. There were many situations I have been put into which I had no support eg:giving prescription coupons to patients on medicare or other federal funded programs. My zone manager very angerly stated "just keep the customer happy"! So, no ethics about breaking the law, just shut the customer up and get them out. SERIOUSLY? Basically, its the same complaint about the silly gas points Kroger "rewards" the public with for shopping at Kroger. And then there are the silly little games the technicians play evaluating floater pharmacist. The Zone managers promote the silly little games and then wants to hold a pharmacist accountable for not running over to wait on a customer, while they are performing a prescripiiton verification, and the technicans are standing off to the side talking about the latest and greatest thing that happened last weekend or bashing their co-workers not in the pharamacy. Games which should not be promoted by management, they sould be STOPPED in the work force!

    I have been working at Kroger full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A union shop that has negotiated strong benefit package

    Cons

    Local managers can thwart an employees ability to apply for other positions in the company. The Job Posting Acknowledgment form can allow a store manager to stop an employee from being interviewed for a job that in most cases the store manager has no knowledge of the skills needed. This basically negates Kroger from being an equal opportunity employer... once you get hired....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate the Job Posting Acknowledgment form... allow associates to apply for any position they believe they have the skills to do and let the hiring team decide if the person is the right fit...Not an ill equipped low level manager....
